Message of Christmas From The QUEEN

The Queen’s Christmas message was delivered on a sombre note this morning as she paid tribute to those who have been affected by the economic crisis and those who are fighting in other countries.

She expressed that 2009 was a year “best forgotten” as “it was a difficult year for many”.

She also expressed her sadness on the losses suffered in Afghanistan despite being proud of the positive contribution of men and women under the UK flag in conjunction with their allies.

“It has been 60 years since the Commonwealth was created with more than a billion of its’ members being under the age of 25”, she says and “the organization remains a strong and practical force for good.”

Though she recalled many of the tragic events that occurred this year, we can also recognize astonishment on her part and our own of peoples’ resilience.

So, though it was a sad year, we can lift our spirits with the thought that the new year stores a more cheerful outlook for us.
